The principal advantage of worm gears is their capacity to offer higher reduction ratios and correspondingly substantial torque multipliers. They can also be used as reducers for low to medium speed applications. Also, since their reduction ratio is primarily based on the quantity of teeth on the equipment, they are far more compact than other kinds of gears. Like good pitch leadscrews, worm gears are typically self-locking, creating them excellent for hoisting and hoisting apps.
